• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

FS2004 Matching lights (AFW-AFX)


I made an airport with AFX.
As I added a ground polygon, all the lights are covered.
With "Airport for Windows" I added an invisible runway and all the lights can be seen.

Now I want to add the taxiways lights... but it is very difficult to match both taxiways (AFX & AFW) because I can not see in FS what I am doing in AFW.

So, the only way is try and try and try...

Is there an easier way to do that?

Thanks for your help.

Is this for FS9? You say you added a ground polygon in AFX - exactly what is that? An apron or a terrain poly such as an airport background or a flatten?
Thanks Jon for the reply.

I added a photo satellite as a background of the airport.
I used the Ground Polygon Wizard in MCX.

Let's forget AFX... How could I easily match the lights made with AFW with the existing taxiways?

Sorry I have no current working experience with AFW so I can't really say :eek:
